I’m so excited for our new house! Here is a brief description so you can visualize with me… light hardwood floors, sandstone quartz countertops, dark brown cabinets, brick fireplace, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, frog (family room over garage), formal dining room, saltwater pool, and a big backyard that runs into a pond. So there’s not much to update but we are definitely going to make some changes so it fits our style and needs better.
Colors: So the house was just completely repainted for showings… but the colors they picked are reds, browns, tans which are the exact opposite of our coastal colors. So one of the first things we are going to do is paint the entire house. Here are the colors I’m leaning towards. Because of the sandstone color countertops, I’m having a hard time deciding what color to paint the kitchen, but I’m thinking griege. The rest of the house will be as white as possible.
Decor: Obviously were bringing all of our furniture, but the sellers are downsizing so they are leaving quite a few things for us (desk, dining table/chairs, hutch, riding lawn mower, etc). Some new things we are going to need are rugs, new lighting fixtures, and seating. All of the plant babies are coming with.
DIY: Because this house is is pretty basic, I’m going to be adding character to it through some DIY projects. There will definitely be a shelving project and some shiplap happening in the near future. We are also going to be updating some of our existing furniture (the ol’ orange dresser is getting a face lift).
We have our inspection today and we will be moved in before Memorial Day weekend. I can’t wait until the house is officially ours so I can take pictures and show you guys everything!
